WikiLeaks has released a series of emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton campaign chair, former chief of staff for Bill Clinton, and counsellor to Barack Obama.

Organized “in rough food groups,” Podesta’s thinking behind the organization quickly became apparent.

Many of the choices were obvious:


Rep. Javier Becerra (D-Ca.)
HUD Sec. Julian Castro
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti
Labor Secr. Tom Perez
Interior Sec. Ken Salazar
